Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Great for low carb-ing
A friend offered this tea during our no-sugar period. It wasn't intensely sugar sweet like Southern sweet tea, but a subtle note at the end. Very satisfying when detoxing from sugar. Been in love with it ever since. And Republic of Tea is the only place I can find it. And if they could make a de-caffeinated version, I would
When I ordered this I mistakenly thought it was an herb tea. I end up being the only one drinking it. I prefer the blackberry or English breakfast but it has a different enough taste that it is nice for variety. I still have to sweeten it as I like my tea really sweet.
Not natural taste
It is subtly sweet which I prefer, but its sweetness tastes very artificial to me, nothing close to natural. Aftertaste I got each sip was almost unbearable at the end.
Not a Fan
I tend to agree with several of the other reviews that the stevia, while providing a nice sweet ring for a brief moment on the tongue, the overall taste seems to come off being imitation and/or overly saccharine-like.
Went From 'Eh' To One of My Favs!
When I had my first sip of my first cup of this tea, I was quite disappointed. It wasn't as sweet as I was expecting (In fact, I didn't really think that it was sweet at all) and I didn't really care for the flavor. But I am now about a quarter of the way through my tin, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. This tea does not taste sweet in the front of your mouth, at the beginning of the sip. The sweetness comes a second later, towards the back of your mouth and after you swallow. I think that if you're expecting that, you will be less disappointed in the sweetness with that first sip. The flavor is very different. And with time and exposure, has really grown on me. It tastes floral and exotic and is really, very lovely. For me, the timing of the sweetness (a second after you sip) combined with the exotic flavor makes this a really complex tea that very stimulating to drink.
